Future Unicorn Award 2021

  • The Future Unicorn Award aims at celebrating scale-ups from across Europe that have the potential to become the future European tech giants. It puts under the spotlight SMEs which have demonstrated to be successful in digitising their business processes and in offering innovative digital products and services.

The award is compiled by asking all the national trade associations affiliated with DIGITALEUROPE to select a single scale-up from their country. This results in a truly pan-European selection of incredible digital companies from all sectors, including financial technologies, health solutions, smart home, academic, industrial and many more.

The 21 nominees – which include innovative young companies working in digital health, renewable energy, cloud computing, fintech and more – hail from all four corners of our continent and show the diversity of European innovation.

The 2021 winner was announced at Masters of Digital, DIGITALEUROPE’s flagship annual conference, held online this year on 3 and 4 February 2021.
